Nottinghamshire site named ‘New Development of the Year’ at trade awards

Homebuilder, Keepmoat is celebrating after its transformation of Gedling colliery has been recognised with a prestigious housebuilding award.

The business was awarded ‘New Development of the Year’ in the 2024 showhome awards for its commitment to developing new homes and flourishing communities in Nottinghamshire.

The regeneration project will see the business invest millions of pounds into transforming the former colliery yard to create a housing development boasting zero carbon ready two, three and four-bedroom homes.

Last year the development became the first in the UK to offer homes built to the anticipated Future Homes Standard (FHS) for open market sale. All the new homes at the development feature air source heat pumps, solar PV panels, increased levels of insulation, EV charging points and smart hot water cylinders, which use AI technology to understand how much hot water people living in the home use on average, to reduce waste.

Celebrating the award win, Land and Partnerships Director at Keepmoat, East Midlands, Robin McGinn, said: “It’s great to win the ‘New Development of the Year’ award in recognition of Gedling Green. It is a testament to the work we are doing to prioritise bringing sustainable dwellings to Nottinghamshire.

“Judging for the awards is rigorous, with just a small number of finalists being selected from hundreds of entrants. The panel commended us on our demonstration of the latest in energy efficient technology and sustainable house building in relation to our flagship Gedling Green site.”
